Hello marbet,

I would think a webpage, or 'page', is how everything on the internet opens. Perhaps you meant tab?

Go to your internet options. Towards the bottom you will see a section titled, "Tabs". Click Settings and choose how you want tabs to function in your browser.

Let me know if you have any other questions

Ah, I think I see now. Apologies for the misunderstanding.

No, you cannot change that. Those links are scripted in websites to either open a new tab or window. You can choose in "Tabs" which you prefer. I prefer tab, because then I can close the previous window more easily.

Some links will direct you to another webpage in the same window (to which you can use the 'back' button), and some will direct you to a completely new window, or tab (based on your settings). It all depends on what the website itself tells your browser to do.

It is different at work? Perhaps tell me a couple things:

Are you using a different web browser for each location?

Which link are you having trouble with? please give me the website address (ie yahoo.com) and the link inside (ie news.yahoo.com)

Perhaps I am just simply overlooking the solution at the moment.

Concerning the original problem of website links: do you know of a link as an example for what you are describing? I would like to see if first hand, if possible.


At work, I would think you would have a newer version of IE, perhaps because IE8 is the earliest version on the Windows 7 operating system. It is easy to check. You would click "Tools" or something that looks like a cog-wheel. Look to the bottom of the list at about internet explorer. That should list the version you are using at home, and also in your office.

If you have IE7 running at home, I would think you would be running windows XP. If you are running XP, the latest browser you can upgrade to is only IE8. Still, IE8 comes with many security improvements and other features over IE7, so I highly recommend upgrading to the latest version of IE as soon as possible: Internet Explorer - Web Browser for Microsoft Windows
Note that Internet Explorer 9 is even more secure and faster than IE8. Only Windows 7 and Windows Vista can use IE9, however.

There were many fixes to the latest browser, perhaps upgrading might solve your problem?
